Our Pre-Surgical Clinic is designed to make sure you are ready for surgery. They are responsible for collecting, reviewing and getting approval from your surgeon, anesthesia, and the hospital, prior to giving you the green light for surgery. They will also help you understand how to prepare for your surgery, including: what to wear, what to eat, what to drink, what medications you can or cannot take, and answer any questions that you might have. The appointment should take approximately 30-60 minutes.
